6:15 am
>> meteorologist: welcome back, here is what we have, there are sections changes, high clouds are out but temperatures the same as we had yesterday, a little milder, 64 central park, 63 in newark, bridgeport 60, 63 in montauk all little less cloud cover in connecticut but it will be rolling in the cloud cover is thin so not a big deal, winds from the northeast at 3 to 10 miles an hour makes it feel cooler but other than that not a lot happening. we do have more high clouds in the area. what that will do as folks, the sun's rays not so intense today, temperatures not quite as warm. it is coming from an area of low pressure over southeastern states giving them showers there but for us just high clouds for now but by this time we get later sunday into monday we have rain coming at us, high
